Milk and Lime Bread

My Favourite Breads

Milk and Lime Bread myfavouritepastime.comThere are two basic types of limes and lemons, acid and sweet but only acidic types are grown commercially. Limes differ in size, shape and thickness of peel but the different varieties are basically alike. To get the most juice from a lime, the fruit should be a room temperature or warmer. The lime bread tasted really great. I hope you like it too!

Points to Note

  1. Please note that oven temperatures are given as a guideline only. You may need to add or reduce the suggested temperature depending on your oven. I baked the bread at 425ºF (220ºC), for 10 minutes, then at 375ºF (190ºC) for a further 35 minutes.
  2. For cup measures: spoon the flour into the cup, heaping it up over the top, then slide a knife across the top to level off the extra. Be careful not to shake or tap the cup to settle down the flour or you will have more than you need.

  2. Interesting recipe! I’m imagining the scent of the lime wafting through the kitchen while this is baked. What a nice quick bread recipe. You never cease to fascinate me with all your recipes Liz! Did you get more snow down your way? We are having lovely warm sunny weather here and the daffs are almost done blooming and tulips are full out now. I sure do love this time of year! Have a great weekend coming up!

    1. it’s been nice the last two days, even though we shovelled on Sunday and Monday. There’s a cool sunshine today. Quite pleasant. I really loved the aroma of this bread and the fact that it’s so easy to make. We still have one projected bout of snow then real spring begins. I’ll be over the moon. Have a brilliant day.
